Packers Martellus Bennett reacts to brother's encounter with police

It is only the first game of the season, but Wilson took a lot of hits and was seen on the ground more than he was standing up.

Including playoffs, the Seahawks have lost eight in a row at Lambeau since 1999.

Green Bay held the Seahawks out of the end zone, and limited Seattle's offense to just 225 yards Sunday.

On the interception, Jones was hit almost in the chest by a Rodgers throw, but grabbed the ball and rumbled to the end zone untouched. "Because I don't", defensive end Cliff Avril said.

One of those, a personal foul on Seattle starting CB Jeremy Lane, led to his ejection for throwing a punch, though replays did not show a punch thrown.

Seattle answered with a field goal of their own, a 41-yard attempt that left Blair Walsh a ideal three for three on the day. Seattle settled for a field goal to make it 17-9 with 6:17 remaining but never saw the ball again. Ty Montgomery scored one play later to give Green Bay a 7-3 lead. But the way Bennett came to Rodgers' defense was perhaps his most memorable play. That was all the offense the Packers needed.

When the Seattle Seahawks traveled to Green Bay to take on the Packers for opening weekend, many fans expected a dominate effort by a defense. Graham turned to his left, had the ball on both hands-then dropped it before it plopped out of bounds into the triumphant Green Bay sideline.

The final minute of the first half is worth recounting because it was as good as it got for Seattle Sunday.

Monday, they'll get back on the field at their practice facility in Renton, going back to work to fix more problems than they hoped they'd have. After two running plays that went nowhere, Wilson completed a 34-yard, scramble throw to Doug Baldwin, then ran 29-yards for a first down.

Prior to signing with Seattle in the offseason, Lacy played four seasons with the Packers. Asked about the new-look secondary, easily the weakest link last season, Daniels downplayed the consistent pressure from the pass-rushers and spoke instead about the coverage as the reason Wilson was limited to 14 completions in 27 attempts for 158 yards.

Beyond Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, the Packers also have a glut of young receivers they're developing.

"It wasn't like we were far, far off or anything like that", Wilson said.

Instead, the Seahawks managed just 90 on 18 carries - 59 of which came on two runs (one by Chris Carson and another by Russell Wilson). In the receiving end, Austin Hooper posted 128 yards and a touchdown in two catches while Julio Jones added 66 yards in four catches.

Terrible Efficiency: The Seahawks went 3-for-12 on third down.

The first half was a virtual stalemate. However, it was Green Bay's offense that struggled to get going against the talented Seahawks defensive front. The Packers had not been blanked at Lambeau in the first half since 2004.
